TILDA WITH HAWAII FLOWER

Happy Monday Maggie-lovers!  Hope you all had a fun weekend.  I got a few new stamps and couldn't wait to ink them up.  I started with Tilda with Hawaii flower, I guess because I'm from Hawaii and that is our state flower! And of course, she has a butterfly sitting on her arm!  I love butterflies!  I've seen some "book cards" popping up and thought I'd give it a try.  I saw the original instructions on "Tina46" blog site but the measurements were in centimeters and I didn't have the patience to convert it to inches, then the wonderful Hope C. sent an email out with some basic instructions so I thought I'd give it a try.  I made a few small adjustments to Hope's measurements and came up with this:
This is the front of the book box.  It measures 4.5" wide by 5.0" high.  The cover is cut 5" x 10" and scored at 4.5" from each end giving you a 1" section in the center.  I used SU! pink pirouette for this cover.
Tilda is stamped with Memento tuxedo black on PTI select white CS and colored with Copics.  The green mat piece is from CTMH olive CS.  DP is from Making Memories "Dilly Dally" line.
I kept the front rather plain firstly because of the size, and I wanted to keep the focus on this cutie-pie Tilda, that of course, I got from Diana's Magnolia-licious online store!  I tell ya, she's the sweetest Lady and her service is always fast.  Click on her store icon on my sidebar to get there to order your stamps!

This is the inside.  I didn't take a good shot to show the "book" part but it is about 1" deep.  I used my new heart "Doily Dies" from Cheery Lynn Designs that my sister got for me and just love all the cut out hearts!  The butterfly in the "book window" is from a stamp set from Prickley Pear, and has a matching butterfly die that was gifted to me from a dear friend, Linda (thank you Linda!).  The flourish die-cut on the front and on the bottom of the heart is from my Nellie Snellen die.
I also needed a "thank you" note card and again used this Tilda with Hawaii flower since I couldn't stop playing with her!

The "envelope" is die-cut from a "Treat Bag" by Lifestyle Crafts which I believe is a line from QuicKutz.  I had to keep my "note" flat to fit in it so again, it's not embellished with flowers and trim so it would fit.
Well, that's all I have to share today. 
Tomorrow I will share with you some awesome calendar pages I received from the super talented Tammi.  Her work is incredible and you will see it all tomorrow.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.  Have a wonderful week and happy crafting!
Maggie hugs,

HI Cami! This is truly gorgeous! I love how you jumped right in to making a book card. Your coloring is fabulous and the dp's are so, so pretty! I love the way you did the inside with the hearts on one side and the large scalloped edge on the book side! The envelope is wonderful, so cool that the book will slip right into it!
Fabulous job...hugs...Barb

Cami, Your book creation is fabulous, and I too love this sweet Tilda. As soon as I spotted this gorgeous girl I thought of you in Hawaii.

Big hugs Jodie from Oz xx

Janie Printz said...

My 1st thought when I saw this little cutie was it would be so perfect for you & then I popped on over to your blog & there she is. you make the most amazing things & this book card is just wonderful. I'll certainly give that one a try. I don't do centimeter's so thanks for breaking it down to inches.
This little girl is going on my "have to have" list so better go grab her while I can.
Both are just beautiful ...
Hugs, Janie
